Green ring


#1

I have a green cab stone ring that I can’t for the life of me figure
out what it is. It is a dark green soft stone like I have never seen
before. My boss thought it was a turquoise, but I’ve never seen one
this dark green. All of the green turquoise I have seen is a
yellowish green. This is like a rich jade green. It is set in a
beautiful 18k hand fabricated ring. I say soft because it has worn
indentations in the sides (its a tall cab) where the prongs are.
Also, I took it out and sanded the bottom and it is indeed soft. If
anyone has any idea, I can send a picture to you.

Always dangerous to speculate on the identity of a stone without
being able to examine it- that disclaimer being issued, if it is a
rich jade green but has the lustre of turquoise and is soft, it may
well be variscite. Much of the variscite out their is a paler green,
like pistachio or mint ice cream, but some is very deep green, and
may also be translucent.

Tourmaline - or glass???

I have a silver ring that was my mother’s. It is set with a
turquoise cab that through 60 years of wearing and abuse (soaps and
other chemicals that she handled) by Mom is now a deep (rather ugly)
green. Could it be that?

My journey with orchid members to find out what my green stone is
has been fascinating. What a wonderful resource this is. Thank you
to everyone who has answered my call for help. I have researched
each one and gained a wealth of in the process.
